I AM CHRISTOPHER LEACH THE ARTIST. I started this blog so that I can share with everyone my vast collection of transport photographs showing a personal and nostalgic view of the industry with images that span some 45 years taking in the U.K and some of Europe. I have no darkroom and so rather than being the perfectionist after tidying them up I upload the images warts and all, and even those that won't scan squarely or are scratched. In a way it adds age and character. You are all free to download these for your personal use but please remember I still own them and you are not just free to use them without prior permission for any knd of publishing. Click on images to enlarge them and if you want to see more leave your comments or visit my website for the mother-site with galleries including those Buses & Girls: PICTUREWORLD

Exciting London in the 90's: London Coaches RM 84

The trans dressing up scene was very in the Nineties with fetish-dance clubs and the more glittery parties like Kinky Gerlinky. Here on the London Embankment visitors on an open-top Routemaster get a view of a transvestite being made up for a fashion shoot. This one on the 'Original Tour' RM 84 looked a bit unloved but when London Coaches started they turned them out in traditional livery almost like new.
